The Youth Ministry Training Manual is a practical, functional guide for those with a desire to implement or improve youth ministry at the local church level:

  • Full-time, paid youth workers in a larger church who desire to increase their understanding of youth work and the spiritual effectiveness of the youth program,
  • Part-time, paid workers in a smaller church who have need of increased training and additional resources for youth ministry,
  • Volunteer youth workers in any church who desire to increase their knowledge of youth work and perhaps implement a program where none exists.

We have found the manual to be extremely valuable in preparing our XL Ministries interns for effective ministry within the local church.  We believe that it will continue to be an extremely effective tool in preparing and sending out ministers who will be spiritually prepared to excel in the work for the Lord.

This resource is designed to be a multi-faceted tool, providing:
